Lion Cookie Cake

My sister is always claiming that she has not an ounce of talent.  I have heard this for years.   Well, I no longer believe the untalented claim at all.  Look at this giant cookie she made for her kiddo's birthday.  
Isn't it adorable?

Urban Garden

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you all know I love Dresdens. Well, I thought that since I went crazy and quilted my QAL quilt in two days.  (Only because I never sleep.)  I had a whole 2 hours to spare and would enter it in the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild.  I had already entered my pillow, "sew" why not my favorite quilt.......

My Sew Intertwined Quilt

Sew Intertwined QAL

I spent many a night trying to get this quilt top perfect.  The paper piecing, I absolutely loved working on.  Except for the fact,  I messed up two more blocks!  Urgh!  It made me sick.  I wanted to get my quilt top all finished up before the September 6th deadline.  I had started the QAL late and then I just kept getting the colors in the wrong spot.  But now those mess-ups are going to make fabulous pillow shams for my queen sized quilt.  And here it is...

My Dresden Challenge Entry ~ Shattered

Months back, I heard of a Dresden Challenge that was being held by the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild.  The Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild is celebrating Darlene Zimmerman’s 20th Anniversary for her EZ Dresden ruler.  I am really new to quilting and I purchased the Dresden ruler even before I really started quilting.   I love Dresdens, they have such a classic feel to them, and I just can't seem to resist.  So, I figure why not enter one of my little Dresden creations.  And here is what I came up with.....

My Blog Post was Hijacked!!


If you have a blog,  you spend time writing, taking the perfect picture and proofreading to get the exact words and image you want to express on you blog.  Recently, a post of mine was re posted verbatim from my blog.  In no way did I give the person permission, she did post where she stole the information from.  (As if she was doing me a favor)  She (other blogger)  also stole all my pictures from the post.  To say the least, I was a little upset.  I don't mind sharing my projects and ideas, but they are my projects and ideas,  asking first would have been the right thing to do.  So, I thought I would share a little of what I learned from my experience.
